HTC One M8 for Windows headed to T-Mobile US this fall

The HTC One M8 for Windows is coming to T-Mobile in the US later this year. The carrier has announced that the phone will be available to customers this fall. T-Mobile is the third carrier to announce availability of the M8, following Verizon and AT&T.

The HTC One M8 for Windows was announced last week, with Verizon being the only carrier mentioned. It's essentially the same device as its Android counterpart, though of course powered by Windows Phone 8.1. It has a quad-core 2.3GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded to 128GB with a microSD card. Those wanting to be notified about when the M8 is available from T-Mobile can sign up on the carrier's website{.nofollow}.

Will you be picking up the HTC One M8 for Windows from T-Mobile? Sound off below in the comments.

  • Your move, Sprint.
  • Your move, rest of the world...
  • Hahaha yes .!! Needed in ROW
  • What does it mean when he says "this fall"
  • In tmobile terms, it could be anywhere from now till next August, lol.
  • Maybe early 2016.
  • Here in the US the Fall could mean anytime September and after this year.
  • This fall probably means sometime in December before the winter solstice on the 21st, but hopefully closer to the beginning of October.
  • "Fall" in the US is technically September 1st to December 21st. 
  • Yes, this too. Hoping for a Canadian release.
  • Id be hoping more for a way to flash the android version then waiting for a Canadian provider to pick it up
  • That's a fail both sides are firm on dual boot or anything along those lines u want Droid u buy Droid version u want windows u buy windows
  • Hey, now *there's* an interesting idea. Though the rush if U.S. carriers grabbing this phone (3 out of the big 4!) is promising.
  • I'm still waiting to hear which new windows phone Bell is bringing in this year.  Could be the M8.
  • I know right???
  • Hope they release it in the Philippines
  • Dang, you beat me to it.!!
  • Seriously Sprint get your WP SH*T together!
  • I read somewhere that Sprint would be getting it to. I think it was on Neowin.net
  • You probably read that they MIGHT be getting it friend. For those Sprint customers I really hope so.
  • Perhaps HTC gets it exclusives reduce sales.
  • Yes, I'm planning to replace my 1020 because m8 has 5mp ffc, SD slot, and RF sensor. Also, don't like how slow the 1020 camera is.
  • Hey, not sure if you know, i didn´t until last week, but i changed the default camera from the nokia camera to the windows camera and the difference is HUGE! really fast!
  • Amen
  • No it's your move... Come on over to T-Mobile. They'll even pick up your ETF plus you'll get a cheaper plan.
  • Nope. Canadian. :P
  • Nah I'm still good with Lumia :) good to see it on more carriers
  • I gotta say. I want to nominate this as comment of the year IMO
  • Your standards are too low!
  • Have you seen my screen name?
  • Indeed I have.
  • Wow, HTC doing this release much nicer than Lumia releases
  • Watch and learn MS /Nokia
  • Every one is making such comments,but must not know or not be considering that it was Microsoft that supposedly approached and worked closely with HTC on this version of the phone. The One M8 was already on these carriers,so having them pick it up probably wasn't that hard. I agree that Microsoft/Nokia needs to release a high-end Windows Phone and make it the same and available across at least all of the major carriers simultaneously. I've been saying that for a while. However it's not just left up to them,the carriers are probably more to blame. The McLaren Windows Phone was supposed to be that phone. Too bad it's reportedly cancelled for now. :(
  • Even nicer would be releasing on all carriers at the same time and let consumers choose.
  • Hell yeah. Mu'phuka
  • Msft/nokia/Lumia take notes... Release some dang devices!!!
  • Wait bro for Sept 4 for 830
  • Wouldn't surprise me if the Sept 4th 830 announcement is another carrier exclusive. Likely AT&T but one could only hope that Microsoft/Nokia would try to get this on all carriers (that means you Sprint)  
  • Or a europe release that evades all this carier exclusive usa bullshit
  • It's supposedly got like 5 carrier variants with different features.
  • Yea, I would assume the 830 is for AT&T and the 730 is for T-Mobile.
  • The 830 could potentially be released on three US carriers: AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile.
    http://www.wpcentral.com/new-rumor-claims-lumia-830-could-have-three-mod...
  • If no MS or Lumia device by then... I'm switching to HTC.
  • +930
  • +M8
  • "+M8" good one lol
  • +1 I'm getting tired of my 521. I want a flagship
  • You and me both. Love my 521 but, it's getting laggy and just isn't adequate enough anymore.
  • I like the 521 still. But I like to have a high end WP. But the M8 may not be the right model since the camera is not up to par and I don't like the back.
  • I've been in a struggle over this phone for a while, the one M8 is my favorite phone with everything but the camera, I debated going to android for it a few times, then it came to verizon, and I almost switched, i refused to pay that much when I'm paying $30 on Tmo with unlimited talk/text/data and 2.5gb 4G LTE... now that its coming to tmo.. now im torn between the 830 (which would essentially be a slight upgrade from my 925 with an SD card) and the m8... im truly torn I'm leaning very heavily towards the m8,  reality.. I dont know if i really should care about the camera as much as I do.. the m8's camera isnt bad, it lacks mp, but it has a nice senseor so its pictures dont turnout BAD, but it doesnt beat my 925.. and im almost certain the 830 is gonna have a pretty beast camera... IM SO TORN
  • Tell me about it
  • You'll regret it, take it from an HTC 8x user.
  • I had a Surround that I flashed to 7.8 and yea, HTCs support for their phones is crap but the phone was awesome. The only issue I ever had with it was it was heavy as hell.
  • I owned the HTC X8. I know exactly what you mean. Moved on to 925 and thought I'd never look back... But 5" full HD is pretty attractive.
  • Exactly. My wife jumped on the 8X because she liked the look of the device and the specs at the time. That thing had so many issues that it became comical. id HTC handle these issues? Not in the least. HTC has a hard time supporting their devices. If HTC cant support their phones, then I can't support HTC...no matter how awesome the M8 is.
  • As a former big box electronics salesman,I'd say don't right a company of just because of a bad experience. All have their good and bad,and all can change from good or bad or vice versa. Take a look at what a company has done most recently and take it from there. Things have a way of changing for the better sometimes but if you just write it off without looking into it you may be missing out on something you'd enjoy.
  • I think the problem was demand. HTC didn't sell enough to care. With the specs of this device I believe it will sell better thus result in better support... I think this is what others are hoping for too. Its a shot in the dark, nonetheless. But what in life, isn't.
  • Nah, I won't. Had a Titan II and loved it.
  • This brand is like any other. Individual user (or groups of users) experiences aren't a good measure.  I manage my family's phone lines and so have bought everything from original iPhone (and iteration through 4s) and Windows Phone starting on Focus WP7.  That said, I have used (and handed down) HD7S, Titan, Titan II and an 8X.  All really well made phones in that they survived us all just fine.  You can argue specs and support and that's a different story, but HTC does make some good phones. The Titan II and the 8X were my favorite.  I moved to 920 and 1520, since.  But I'm afraid that after almost a year of use the 1520 is simply too big.  I deal and cope because it's easy to ignore the size when it's so dang functional.  I would just appreciate something a little smaller. Now that there are phones in between 920 and 1520, I'm anxious to get my hands on one.  Like most of you, however, we are prevented from doing so because of the DAG-NUMB EXCLUSIVES.  :D  More products equals more choice. Hopefully these options will bring people who need to differentiate themselves or that don't care for Nokia into the fold.  We've all read the numbers for WP lately.  While numbers don't mean squat to use actual users, it means something to the platform.
  • Exactly. Experiences will vary. My gf had a few HTC Android phones as well as some of my friends. I had Samsung Android phones and always wanted one from HTC. When I saw the 920 I ditched that crap from Samsung. They keep breaking easily and freezing up all the time,like my old Blackberry.. lol My gf had moved to the GS3,when I came home with the 920,she ditched it and got a 920. Now we both have 920s and 1520s. Love them. The only thing I think that would make me switch at the moment is a replacement of the 1020 with new high-end specs,with a 4.9 inch to 5.5 inch screen if the phone is designed comfortably or a device such as the ill-faithed McLaren.
  • The issue at hand is...., will HTC stand by this phone. Or lack support like with the others. Too many variables
  • If the phone sells well, they will support it.
  • The chance of that happening is very slim.
  • Much better chance now that it's going to be on 3 carriers. 
  • +1020, great looking phone indeed.
  • Lol, you say it like Microsoft is gonna lose either way.
  • I'm not saying anyone is losing. I'm just saying... I've waited long enough. I am in need of a larger screen that isn't a phablet
  • The BEST phone I've ever owned was an HTC.  The HTC HD2.  And I've only ever purchased two name brand phones (with my money) and they are the HTC and Nokia branded phones.  I also have the HTC Radar 4G another awesome phone.  But I sure can't speak for the HTC 8X.  But for HTC branded phones I've purchased they've been GREAT!  And yes, I sill use them.  I always loved the weight of the HTC phones.  They feel substantial.  Well made.  To each his/her own I suppose.
  • HTC Evo was a great phone for me at the time.
  • I admire HTCs equipment. Its the support thats lacking. They barely produce apps. Slow updates if any. The hardware was never an issue.
  • Fair enough. I'm hoping HTC really wants to support WP again and not repurposing the Android unsold stock as a Windows branded phone. :/
  • It's nice to see HTC show Nokia how it's done. Hopefully if Microsoft can fix Nokia's incompetence and Microsoft helps the M9 be a dual-launch, next year could be a very exciting time.
  • Absolutely!
  • Actually I'm tempted to think it is Microsoft's incompetence. Ever since they bought Nokia, it seems like Nokia is slowed down.
  • Nokia may have slowed, but now other OEMs are getting onboard.
  • 920, Icon, and 1520 (a.k.a. their entire high end line up) were all exclusive. HTC and Samsung have usually been on as many networks as possible. 520 and 521 were exclusives when they should've been the same phone on both carriers. Actually, the 635 is at least on AT&T and T-Mobile, so Microsoft taking over actually made their US line up less terrible. Sorry buddy, it was Nokia lol
  • And other OEMs have sped up. Microsoft does not want to make hardware, they are only making it to fill gaps where necessary.
  • It has indeed
  • Hopefully it draws some attention from the Android fanboys who don't even give WP a chance cause it doesn't officially support anything google other than Gmail through the stock mail app
  • Windows Phone = Lumia
  • No it isn't.
  • Yes but in a 90%
  • I hope that it's down to 90 now. It was 95% or so in the last report.
  • That's completely wrong. There was Windows Phone before Lumia existed so your equation doesn't add up.
  • Exactly. People have easily forgotten all the different models that have been.
  • Windows phone 8 does equal Lumia though. All the other models aside,no one cares about them really.
  • Hopefully we will see the HTC One M8 for Windows all over the world come Fall.  Excellent to hear other carriers picking it up.  A huge plus for Windows Phone.
  • If I didn't have forty-eleven wireless charging pads I would be seriously interested in picking this phone up.  I saw one the other day and was extremely tempted.
  • Econ 101: Never factor sunk costs into future decisions. At least, that's how I justified it
  • A little too late?? But better late than never. Microsoft/Nokia highend phone lineup is completely missing so far. With so many OEMs signed up I was optimistic, but alas. Come on "Let it rain Windows Phone!!"
  • This little too late excuse people use is pointless. There have been many WPs so far. The Microsoft\Nokia relationship just scared manufactures and slowed them down. Idk why everyone can't see what Microsoft's doing. They have slowed their Lumia offerings except for lower end to try to bring other manufactures back to the fold. Just like any tech, it constantly changes every day and doesn't make anyone (late). Companies evolve as consumer demand\technology evolves
  • Exactly. Why would another OEM manufacture a phone when Nokia has 90 or so percent market share. It's actually a good move by Microsoft.
  • Microsoft's biggest concern right now is selling its services, which is why it made the move release mobile Office on IOS and Android first. Concerning Windows Phone, their primary concern is getting the OS on as many devices as possible, which will do much more to increase WP's market share than if they just pushed their own devices. Microsoft really isn't trying to compete with HTC, Samsung, Sony, etc in phone manufacturing, just the same as Google. The Lumia brand now I think just serves mostly as a reference design for other OEMs just like Nexus for Google.
  • This is exciting!
  • Interesting.  This might keep me with TMO.  I'm actually more interested if I can get get an unlocked version that supports TMO LTE.  Microsoft Store?  I'm done with relying on TMO to support my device.
  • Not until it comes out on AT&T or T-Mo
  • Literally just bought my Moms the Lumia 1320 unlocked from NewEgg for her Birthday.
    I was thinking the HTC M8 would've been the better choice due to screen size and camera but with no release date forthcoming from T-Mobile I had to get the Lumia 1320.
    I'm still happy T-Mobile is getting this soon.
  • FFFFFFFFFFF.........KKKKKK!! I just switched over from T-Mobile to Cricket!! :'(
  • You'll be able to use the inevitable ATT version on cricket.
  • True!  What a relief (although I'm loving my 1320 right now).
  • Cancel if it is less then 30days. Say there service sucks! Switch back
  • Switch back when the phone comes out under someones ref using the $50 plan and get the truly unlimited $80 plan for 12 months.  :) 
  • I'm about to switch from Tmobile to cricket. We'll have the ATT version soon :) Will have to buy full price though.
  • Lumia 635 should work on cricket I think
  • Great phone. Crap network.
  • Purely subjective, some areas of the US it's good while in others it needs improvement.
  • Not really. Plenty of objective reports that say the same thing.
  • I'm on tmobile and have been for awhile and get excellent coverage wherever I go. Only place I've been that didn't have good coverage was north Alabama but then again, no ones service works there except ATT and that's only because they bought out a network from a company called Otelco that had the area locked up.
  • T-Mobile performs very well in the places that matter -- cities where people actually live. I'd rather get a 75% cheaper bill and unlimited LTE rather than "coverage" of some god-forsaken flyover-country hamlet with only one carrier that works (with data caps) for 4x the price. I feel sorry for people who live in parts of the United States that are so remote, underpopulated and irrelevant that they don't enjoy the fast, unlimited LTE that T-Mobile offers.  Those poor folks have it bad. :(
  • Good and cheap enough for me.
  • Maybe crap to you. In nyc, its pretty reliable
  • I couldn't use T mobile because of the service in my area, but saying crap network basically implies that it sucks everywhere. I actually hear that the service is very good in the bigger cities.
  • yup, live in mentor Ohio, and i almsot always have 5 bars, and on the way to sandsuky it only lost service twice for about 3 minutes each.
  • If you got the dot view case, then you can have glance with the M8. So nothing is really keeping me from it. Once it hits att, ill use the dreaded next program to upgrade. Screw it.
  • Me too, lol
  • Finally, a high end windows phone device on T-mobile.Let's go!
  • I am really happy for you T-Mobile guys. Every company deserves a top of the line Windows phone
  • yea! its about time we got one! last one we had was the 925.. and they EOL'd that like 2 months ago!   also, interesting thing to note, I talked to the sales person in a local T-mobile store, and the lumia 830 came up, he said he doesnt think there gonna get that one, would kinda suck... but it would make my dilemma a lot easier (no lumia 830? no choice but the htc one m8!)
  • I'd buy this. Gimme.
  • This is awesome. This is what's need. Get phones on board with all carriers. Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • All nice and all, but still no official word on Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 for HTC8X. Their support really sucks. It's like a waiting game to find out if you will get it or not and when.
  • Good to see a same device in more than one carrier in the US. I think this can help WP there. Off: I can never make a nice wallpaper to put behind the tiles. Would you like a as beautiful as that of the image. :P
  • ive learned that bright colors, no black, no letters, and simple works best
  • Having a flagship phone releasing on all networks is something Windows Phone was cruelly lacking.
  • Yup hopefully the Lumia 1525 follows.  I believe it is Verizon, ATT, and T-mobile.  No Sprint support but honestly no one is getting windows phone on Sprint. 
  • Exactly.
  • I'm on T-mobile with a Lumia 925. Should I make the Jump to the HTC M8? Camera perfomance is really important to me, not sure which one is better!
  • Maybe wait for the Lumia 830... definitely will have a better camera. 
  • It's a usable camera the pictures are pretty small though since it's only 5 MP If you want a bigger picture there will probably be something out by Nokia before this is released on T-mobile. 
  • That's a welcoming news, I do have the L925 and is considering the M8 unless MS-mobile can come up with same specs phone and r bigger screen, I've used HTC from way back when it was windows mobile 5.0 all the way to windows phone 7, I was really disappointed with the 8X line cause I know they could've done better seeing that they had high end phones that were doing well on android, they should have taken that approach from back then what they doing now, there build quality is good, I even have my HD2 still in like new condition.
    I'll see how long T-Mobile takes to bring this phone to life.
  • Check WPCentral's camera comparison between the M8, the ATIV SE & the 1520.
  • Loving it...
  • Now if they can just make a call+SMS filter for it and I'll pick it up, otherwise I'll have to get the 830.
  • Doesn't 8.1 include it? I've been having that since forever
  • Call\SMS filter is in WP8.1. No longer phone specific.
  • Do you have an HTC 8X with the 8.1DP installed to verify?
  • Get the 830
  • Knew you were going to say that, I really want the one M8 but I'll just have to see both of them before making a decision.
  • Nokia has the proven realibility.....no need to take a gamble on the HTC ONE. IF it manages to sell well, they'll properly support it MAYBE. But only if. I'd definitely taken proven WP over maybe :)
  • I don't know about that, I've had to get my 925 replaced because my MIC stopped working and now my replacement 925 has overheating, screen flickering, delayed touch and stability issues. The earpiece is also bad, I have to use my speakerphone in order to make calls. My 8X only broke down on me after a year of use and I was shoveling snow in below freezing cold that day but when I had it, it was far more stable than my replacement 925.
  • They will. It has HTC Advantage and part of that program is quick software updates.
  • Woo-hoo!!!
  • Metro PCS????
  • It will work on it
  • Unlocked maybe but if you ask tmobile or metro pcs, they will tell you no.
  • Now you have my attention... I loved my old Trophy
  • What's the weather app upp in right corner called?
  • What's the weather app called? i need to know  
  • Sorry out of topic.. Does any body know? Why my apps such as whatsapp, line, skype, twitter, fb, etc. disapeared from my notification-action center list? How to bring back them all?? Please help.. Tq
  • Please us our forums. This is not the appropriate place. Thank you.
  • I live HTC, and am on an 8x right now. But literally the only thing that causes me pause is that there's no *#&$Ing dedicated camera button. Definitely feels like a deal breaker for me right now.
  • Ugh. *love
  • I feel ya. I removed the camera tile and only use the physical button. It may open a tad slower at times that way but its faster because I don't have to hunt for it. Also I like to hold the button for a few till I lined up correctly. Can't do that when you touch the screen, as far as I know.
  • If no other high end lumias come this might work
  • How does HTC get wide release of their only phone and flagship and Nokia never could? Why don't we see the 930 every where?
  • Because while some here will never admit it, Nokia could show some serious incompetence sometimes.
  • I'm sorry to say but DING, DING, DING - give the guy a prize. No doubt it's not all Nokia's fault and a fair amount of the blame is on the carriers themselves, but some of Nokia's decisions seemed quite problematic. Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Nexus 7
  • I guess this is why Microsoft owns their D&S now.
  • Good move but never again an HTC device for me.
  • Damn, I JUST upgraded to a 920 from a 520. Wife will kill me if I try to get a new phone, but I sure do want one.
  • Well the camera is better on the 920 so don't be too sad
  • I have a 920 and I don't feel like anything out yet is a worthy replacement. Got it on launch day too.
  • I've been using the 925 since it came out on tmobile. If nothing is released Lumia-wise this fall in going to have to go with this. I really don't want to leave Lumia but I need an upgrade!
  • This is not the Windows Phone I want to replace my 925. MS, hurry up and release the rumored 1525 or something new to replace the 1020. :)
  • Is there any way to check out the coverage maps for T-Mobile? I'm considering advising my family to move to them after all they've been doing (that unlimited music streaming is awesome), but I've always heard their coverage isn't the best on highways and remote locations, and with two of my brothers in college in middle of nowhere NY and NH, it's important they still get reliable service. Switching from Verizon would be really expensive though, especially since we can't bring over our phones iirc. At least they would have this beauty waiting for my brothers and I to look at, along with all those unlocked GSM Window Phones.
  • They have detailed coverage maps on their website.
  • Check out the coverage maps on RootMetrics. They reflect real world customer reporting through their app and paint a more realistic picture of what you can expect. You can also quickly overlay coverage from other carriers to see how they compare.
